Iam searching for a cooling system for my athlon XP.
can you recomend me any ?
Liquid cooled is nice. If you don't wanna shell out the money for that, at least consider a Thermaltake Volcano 7+ or a Volcano 9 heatsink and fan. And use Arctic Silver III thermal compound. Also, case fans, case fans, case fans.
Liquid Helium if the above does not sort it !
Thermaltake SLK-800 with an 80mm delta ontop. it is the best air cooling system for xp's but it will sound like a 747 taking off
i use the flower and a shim because it is quiet heavy, but quiet as a mouse with pixy shoes on???
Must reconsider somethin , case fans are inneficient if are set in wrong places .. the warm air will ussually remain on the top of the case ..
CPU = Titan CU-5TB site
Case = Blowers ( Titan )
I have 2 1800+'s and on one I use an Alpha Pal 8045 with a 68cfm Delta, which I did the 7 volt mod on and now is much much quiter and still keeps the cpu under 40c under full load.
And the other one I use a Volcano 7 w/Temperature Control which keeps the cpu under 46c under full load.
Of course both of these cases have 4 case fans each. The volcano 7 is the best value for the price IMHO.
Thermaltake Volcano 7+ and some Artic Silver III and you should not have any problems.
Z4 Intercooler works good for keeping everything cool!

water cooling makes me so nervous right now. I would not leave it alone and on.
Put a fan on the top of the case, for a blow hole.
I installed this one in a new AMD 2200 XP.... quiet and cool. Here's the link and www.tcwo.com carries them at a reasonable price.
Hi, got a question ... got a 2100+ and right now just web browsing the cpu temp is 54c and the case temp is 42c .
Now the cpu has an AMD cooling fan on it and the case has a 450 watt PS with 2 fans blowing out and one case fan in rear blowing out and one on top 80mm pulling air in , there is a place for a front mounted fan 80mm I think.
Ok the questions are these temps to HOT
and if they are how tricky is it to replace the cpu cooler with a better one.
Thanks , Mark
Not positive on the cpu temp, but you may be getting up there. Someone else might want to step in on this one, but as far as replacing your cpu cooler, it's easy.
Here, this will help you..
Thanks ... btw / I played UT for and hour and it got up to 60cpu-47case .....
ok, i read somewhere that hitting 60 was bad...
Install this cpu cooler, it's quiet and runs cool;
get it at www.tcwo.com
